Amazing! I too didn't have horseradish but I used about 2T of worcestershire and about a T of lemon juice to the mixture. I couldn't believe how much the filling expanded when adding the salmon! But it is a beautiful dish and is so smooth and creamy. I also only used 1T of butter and about 2T of milk, and 2T of miracle whip instead of 1/2 c. sour cream. I don't even think I needed the miracle whip at all!!
Twice-Baked Salmon Potatoes

I didn't think this recipe was that great. I used canned salmon. Reheated leftovers after 2 days produced a deappetizing "fishy" smell in the microwave. I might try it again, but avoid leftovers.

I've been been trying a number of healthy "budget" recipes lately in a effort to reduce our grocery expenses. The twice baked salmon potatoes have been the best find yet! First, when you are eating smoked salmon you don't feel like you are eating a penny-pinching dinner. Second, these have got to be impossible to mess up! This would even work to serve to guests. Especially if you are pinching pennies and/or want a no-fail recipe. I followed the recipe except I forgot to pick up horseradish (rats!) so I skipped it. I will make this again with the horseradish as I think it would be even better. Also, replaced the sour cream with creme fraiche because I had some I needed to use up. I think that the recipe could work well with tuna as well if you couldn't find/didn't want to buy salmon. Tuna might be a little more kid-friendly too as smoked salmon has a rather strong taste.

I thought this recipe was wonderful. I didn't have smoked salmon so I just used a can of salmon, as well I did not have any horseradish so I threw in about 2 TBS. of cream cheese. The end result was so smooth and creamy with just the perfect hit of salmon, it tasted like a restaurant dish! The potato's with all the filling was quite large so I only ate a half of one, but my boyfriend ate his whole one plus my other half. I served this with brown butter broccoli and creamed corn, amazing dinner with tons of veg!

Well worth the cooking time it takes to produce this dish.

Awesome and pretty easy. I dont use as much horseraddish as it calls for and the salmon I get is very smoked. Adds a nice flavor.
